Location-changing shooting range - Apply for permission for operation

If you operate a location-changing facility that is used for shooting or other shooting exercises with firearms, testing firearms, or shooting with firearms (shooting facility), or if you want to substantially change the nature or nature of it, you need permission from the relevant firearms authority.

No permission is needed for shooting sites where shots are fired in enclosed spaces solely for the testing of firearms or ammunition by manufacturers of weapons or ammunition, by weapons or ammunition experts or by scientific institutions.

In the case of location-changing shooting ranges, a one-time permit is sufficient before the first installation.

The firing range shall be inspected by the competent authority before it is first put into operation with regard to safety requirements. For this purpose, an expert opinion of a recognised shooting range expert may also be obtained at the expense of the operator.
